The 2006 election of Hamas was not a mistake that Gazans have learned from, Hamas remains the most popular party in Gaza. Gazans therefore cannot be considered the helpless victims of terrorists,
Supporters of Israel are badly divided on several fronts. These divisions weaken a group that is already fighting an uphill battle against opponents of Israel who are far more numerous, better funded, and better organized. It is time for supporters of Israel to stop the infighting and to direct all their efforts in the direction where it is needed, in support of Israel.
If Arab leaders were wise, they would recognize that Palestinian nationalism is dead and that its artificially preserved corpse is a hindrance to peace and progress.
The nation-state Basic Law should have surprised no one. Those who were genuinely taken aback by the realization that Jews have a special place in Israel, have never understood what Israel is.
In the 69 years of this history, Israelis’ support for the two-state solution, however, has slowly eroded. The main reason is the realization that the Palestinians never wanted it and are not likely to ever want it.
While the Lebanese terrorists’ phenomenal arsenal pointed at Israel is indication enough, the whipping up of hatred may be an even stronger indication that Hezbullah is itching for another war with Israel
After 69 years of obstructionism, the Palestinian leadership no longer deserves a seat at the table. It is time for Israel to behave as the victor of the conflict, and to win the peace.

I am not embarrassed that we Arabs lost. We deserved to lose, and I cannot even think of the massacres that may have ensued if we won. I am embarrassed that we started the war in the first place.
What makes someone an anti-Semite? Stupidity? Dark souls filled by all-consuming hatred? Probably a combination of both, but that doesn't matter because anti-Semites have and will always exist.
Edy Cohen, was not born in Israel. He is a refugee from Lebanon. Unlike many refugees, he is not waiting for handouts or international sympathy. He has made a life for himself in Israel and advocates for Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
Lebanon’s friends are the type of friends who make you think that you don’t need enemies. Ironically, except for its "enemy" Israel.
Brave words from an Arab who finds much in the Arab world disgusting, and much to be admired in Israel
My birth on the Arab side of the Israel-Arab conflict was not my choice, but my moral stand is my choice, and my choice is Israel.
